Biography

Joyce joined the University of Huddersfield in 2010 as a Senior Lecturer in Midwifery with responsibilities in research and education. She qualified as a midwife in 1984 and she has worked clinically in a range of settings in different areas within the UK including: Salisbury, Guildford, West Dorset and Leeds. More recently Joyce has been actively involved in a combination of research and education. She completed Master of Public Health degree at the University of Liverpool in 1995, and won a Fellowship award that enabled her to complete a PhD at the University of Leeds in 2004. Since then she has worked as a researcher in primary care at the University of Leeds (2002–2006) and as a Midwifery Lecturer at the University of York (2006–2010).

Research and Scholarship

Joyce’s research has largely focused on maternal and child health and knowledge use in clinical practice. Her PhD was a qualitative study that investigated the way that knowledge is used in clinical practice and the place of research evidence within this. In particular, she explored the way that breastfeeding women and health professionals value and use different kinds of evidence.
